Letter to the Members:
Hello, everyone! My name is Kayla Poling. I am serving as the Southeast Area vice president.

I grew up in Yukon, Oklahoma, until about seventh grade when I moved to Durant, Oklahoma, and enrolled at Silo Public Schools where I joined the FFA. I am the middle child with an older sister and a younger brother.

My high school ag teachers were Brandon and Tara Brown. I do not come from an extensive agricultural background but in eighth grade I was working on my schedule, and I could have either taken an agricultural education class or family and consumer sciences. Luckily, I chose the intro to agriculture class. This class was my first introduction to the FFA. I tried out for the opening and closing ceremonies; from then on I was hooked. I would later that year begin memorizing my first speech. Then that spring I joined Silo FFA’s Nursery/Landscape CDE team.

Freshman year got pretty exciting for me. Before COVID-19 hit, I received my first set of show lambs, and I competed in my all-time favorite FFA event, the Greenhand Quiz contest. Throughout the rest of my FFA career I have competed in numerous FFA LDEs and CDEs including extemporaneous public speaking, proficiency awards and livestock judging.

I joined FFA by chance, but it was the best thing that has ever happened to me. My life would be completely different if I were not in the FFA. I am thankful for all the opportunities and lessons I have gained from this organization.

At first, I thought FFA was just a farming class. I am happy to know that I could not have been more wrong! I have gained my best friends, my dearest memories and my greatest lessons through this organization. FFA and agricultural education has given me valuable experience in the agriculture industry while allowing me to learn critical leadership skills.

I have too many hilarious moments to share but most of my favorites revolve around making TikTok videos with my advisers and chapter members. I have never been more excited than for the year ahead. I can not wait for all the fun and opportunities to serve. Thank you, Oklahoma FFA.
